Flexible keyboards are nothing new, but Royole’s latest creation, the RoType, features a transparent design that can be rolled up. At just 0.04mm thick, the surface is covered in a special film with integrated circuits, and it can stretch as well as curl up without deformation. To type, simply touch the surface like you would on any other keyboard. Read more for a video from CES 2019, additional pictures and information.
“All of the RoType’s critical hardware lies in its metallic case. The case, other than encasing the flexible keyboard when rolled up, houses all the important electronics, and connects wirelessly to any device to allow you to type with ease. The RoType comes with a complete, full-length keyboard that even packs function keys on the top, and doesn’t compromise on key-size… so you’ve got a perfectly capable and feature-laden keyboard in a form-factor that’s 1/10th the size of a physical keyboard,” reports Yanko Design.
